Lacrosse Unlimited on Monday announced the expansion of the institutional sales team with the addition of James Laverty as director of southeast sales.

Laverty comes to Lacrosse Unlimited from Imperial Capital, where he served as senior vice president of institutional sales. Previously, he held multiple senior leadership roles with a focus on Institutional client relationship management.

Laverty will report to Sean Haggerty, EVP of institutional sales and will play a key role in the ongoing expansion of Lacrosse Unlimited institutional and team sales efforts.

“We are excited to have Jim join our team and leverage his skillset to continue our expansion into the marketplace” Haggerty said.

Laverty will be based in Southern Florida, adding an institutional presence to Lacrosse Unlimited current retail location in Boca Raton.

“We love the Florida and entire southeast marketplace and are looking forward to building up our Institutional presence in addition to our successful retail and online efforts,” said Joe DeSimone, CEO of Lacrosse Unlimited.
